The drip tape side of the connector has large ridges on the nuts which allows for easy and effective tightening of the fitting. These drip irrigation fittings also include a long tape barb which allows more of the drip irrigation tape to slide past the sealing point. This allows for an improved seal between the two ends of drip tape, so you won’t have to worry about leakage between connections. To install the Drip Tape Connector, simply slide the drip tape onto the elongated barb and tighten the bright green nut to create a strong seal that will hold for the entire growing season.
*When cutting drip irrigation tape to install onto fittings, it is important to cut a straight edge along the tape to ensure the best connection between the Drip Tape Row Start and the drip tape. We recommend using shears or pruners to ensure a straight cutting line.
